What can you achieve with Treefort?

Exceeds Law Society client ID rules

Firms can satisfy all three client identity methods with one Treefort IDV (Government Issued ID, Credit File and DualProcess).

Flexible verification options

Firms can turn the AML (anti-money laundering) searches, banking verification and the request for a second ID on or off. This gives you the ability to choose the level of assurance that is the best for any given situation.

Advanced anti-money laundering risk reporting

Treefort’s systems will automatically check whether a client’s name appears on sanctions lists orpolitically exposed persons lists.

Enhanced fraud detection with banking verification (when needed)

Treefort uses advanced verification technology in high risk scenarios.

No app required

Unlike other providers, Treefort’s solution does not require your clients to download an app or create an account to get started. This reduces friction and increases the likelihood of your clients successfully navigating the verification process.

Best-in-Canada customer support

Treefort’s best-in-class customer support is offered in French and English between 9:00 am to 9:00pm ET across Canada.

Treefort reports accepted by all 4 title insurers

Firms can share a Treefort report they have obtained with any title insurance companythat has agreed to accept reports from them, in a secure and privacy-compliant manner. This eliminates the risk of the title insurance company requesting a secondidentity verification on a client.
